Scallops With Spicy Cashew Sauce

  • 3 tbsp sunflower or corn oil
  • 1 tsp black mustard seeds
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 lb (500 g) scallops
  • 1 onion, chopped

STEPS :

  1. Work the cashew nuts in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet, add the mustard seeds, and cook until they just begin to pop. Add the garlic and scallops and stir-fry for 2 minutes or just until the scallops turn opaque. Remove with a slotted spoon and reserve.
  3. Add the onion, green pepper, and chili to the skillet, and cook gently, stirring occasionally, for 3-5 minutes, until the onion is soft but not browned. Add the turmeric and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
  4. Add the ground cashew nuts and stock to the mixture in the skillet, bring to a boil, and simmer for 5-10 minutes, until the sauce thickens.
  5. Stir the scallops into the sauce, add salt and pepper to taste, and heat gently to warm through. Serve immediately.
